Intel Sierra Forest Xeon, which has 144 cores and 172 MB of cache
Intel has disclosed further details on its forthcoming Intel Sierra Forest Xeon central processing units (CPUs), which will be outfitted with the Sierra Glen E-Core that has been tuned. In the future, client central processing units (CPUs) that are based on Meteor Lake and Arrow Lake will include this core, which is an enhanced version of the Crestmont core.
It is anticipated that the Sierra Forest Xeon central processing units will be offered in combinations of 144 SP (Stream Processors) and 288 AP (Execution Units).
In the Geekbench 6 database, Are you looking for a new opponent for AMD? the first indication of the 144-core model has recently been discovered. In addition to having capability for 32 DDR5 DIMMs, the chip is designed to operate on the Beechnut City platform, which has a 2S architecture.
The LGA 4677 socket is included in the platform, which also supports up to 350W of thermal design power for CPUs and up to 88 PCIe Gen5 lanes. It is anticipated that the chip would have thermal design power (TDP) values of up to 200W and will be offered in both 1S and 2S servers.
There are 144 e-cores and 144 threads in the unique Intel Sierra Forest Xeon central processing unit. A substantial number of bits of caches is included with every chip, whereas the basic clock speed of each semiconductor is 2.20 GHz. 108 a megabyte of L3, 64 gigabytes of L2, 4 terabytes of L1 data, and 9 gigabytes of L1 instruction cache are all available.
The central processing unit, or CPU, functions on a 2S platform, therefore specifies that it utilizes the resources of two chips and has a total of 288 cores. A CPU, or central processing unit, is used when combined with 256 terabytes of DDR5 RAM.
The operational efficiency of the CPU, or central processor, looks to have been relatively in need; nevertheless, as an outcome of the cache’s existence and the total amount of cores, one may anticipate better results. This central processing unit, on the other hand, seems to be based on an early ES architecture.
In order to cater to cloud data centers, AMD has positioned its Bergamo product line with Zen 4C, which provides remarkable computational power and efficiency. The central processing units (CPUs) feature a larger core count than Intel’s E-core CPUs, and their 256 threads provide a substantial advantage over Intel Sierra Forest’s architecture, which only has 144 threads. AMD EPYC central processing units (CPUs) also provide a much larger amount of cache compared to Sierra Forest, with the top-of-the-line Bergamo SKU offering up to 384 MB of cache.
The difference in architecture between Intel and Genoa means that there are no more threads accessible, despite the fact that Intel has 12.5% more cores than Genoa. In the following week, on December 14th, Intel will present the fifth generation of its Emerald Rapids central processing units. After this, in the first half of 2024, the introduction of Intel Sierra Forest central processing units is scheduled to take place. These two generations will ultimately be succeeded by the Granite Rapids family, which will be powered by P-Cores. This will take happen in the future.
